Equine Law

Horses are fantastic animals. Horses and equestrian sport are loved world-wide. All over the world people work with horses, practice sports with them and sell or purchase them. For the most part this is a lot of fun and good business but unfortunately every now and then there can be a dispute about the sale or purchase, an accident involving a horse and equestrian or sickness of the horse. Equine law can be of help in all kinds of issues regarding horses.


There may be a problem with the purchase of a horse, a liability issue because the horse has inflicted damage or has injured itself.
